Sew Slow

November 18, 2010

I was watching a video the other night on some sewing techniques and thought to myself, “man she sews pedal to the medal”.  After the presser foot was dropped the seamstress matted the foot pedal to the floor and the machine took off.

Me, I’m a medium type of gal.  I set my machine on the medium speed setting and rarely have the foot pedal completely depressed.  Same goes for when I’m working on the serger.  I find that I get straighter seams if I take my time and don’t go as fast as possible.  It’s probably why it takes me longer to sew items than patterns typically suggest for completion time.

How about you?  What’s your sewing style?
